Sbeitla is a small town in north-central Tunisia. Nearby are the Roman ruins of Sufetula, containing the best preserved Forum temples in Tunisia.
The city seems to have experienced great prosperity under Septimus Severus (IInd-IIIrd century) and into Diocletian’s reign (285-305). Most of the buildings visible today date to that period : houses, forum, temples, baths, triumphal gate, theatre etc.
Many of Sbeïtla's structures have survived well. The forum, a mosaic bath tub, Diocletian's Arch and the street layout are among the finest of their kinds in Tunisia.
